The Center for Teaching Excellence Co-Directors hosted the first Large Group meeting of 2016-17 on August 25, 2016.

We invited motivated faculty interested in kick starting the new semester to participate in the annual Back-to-School session! In addition to networking with colleagues, attendees had the opportunity to discuss a range of topics including:

  • Making a good impression
  • Fun, fruitful, first-day activities
  • Building rapport
  • Establishing the right tone for class by creating a safe, thoughtful, effective learning environment
  • Encouraging students to make the most of their experience in the course & college
  • Tips for student & faculty success
  • And much, much more
